In 2013 trials mountain biking legend Martyn Ashton, multiple times world champion and the star of the viral smash hit Road Bike Party suffered a tragic accident – breaking his back halfway through the filming of Road Bike Party 2.
Paralysed from the waist down, he was told he’d never walk, or ride a bike, again. But today, Ashton and his friends Danny MacAskill, Chris Akrigg and Blake Samson uploaded this video to Youtube. It’s probably – no, almost definitely – the best video we’ve seen this year.
We’re in good company too, track cycling legend Chris Hoy just tweeted this:

We defy anyone to watch his face as he rips down the trails without feeling warm and fuzzy inside. What a hero.
